SALT LAKE CITY – The Utah Valley men’s basketball team suffered its second loss of the season to the Cornell Big Red in the Jacksonville Classic.

UVU loses to Cornell

The Wolverines played the Big Red at Flagler Gymnasium in St. Augustine, Florida on Monday, November 20.

UVU lost to Cornell, 74-61.

It was Utah Valley’s final game of the tournament. A day earlier, the Wolverines beat the Southern Miss Golden Eagles in the Jacksonville Classic.

The Wolverines were unable to follow up their win over the Golden Eagles with another victory against the Big Red.

Cornell took down UVU after a strong first half and an even better close to the contest. After the first 20 minutes of action, the Wolverines trailed, 28-24.

Following the break, Cornell caught fire and ran away from Utah Valley. The Wolverines allowed the Big Red to score 46 points over the final 20 minutes and were unable to keep pace. Utah Valley was outscored by nine points in the second half.

Utah Valley finished the game shooting 39.1 percent overall but only 15.4 percent on three-pointers. Cornell shot 45.0 percent from the field, including 31.8 percent from downtown.

Two Wolverines scored in double figures. Drake Allen led UVU with 16 points on 6-12 shooting. Caleb Stone-Carrawell added 15 points, five rebounds, and one assist.

Chris Manon led Cornell with 13 points.

With the win, the Big Red earned the Jacksonville Classic Bay Bracket title.
